Publisher's Description

What language lesson doesn't seem like a lesson? The fun guessing game inside this book! Clever word groupings list three things that are alike and one that it is different. For example, there are living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms, but a mushroom is not a room!

Picture clues will help kids figure out which thing is different and begin to grasp fine-tuned nuances of word parts, roots, and meanings. In addition, the text's guessing-game approach invites kids into a call-and-response dynamic. This title is a great companion to the well-received Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? and What Is Part This, Part That?

Editorial Reviews

"Wordplay forms the basis for an intriguing guessing game as trios of similar things are followed by something different. For very young readers and listeners who enjoy naming objects in pictures, this offers an interesting further step that will also challenge older brothers and sisters. Panda bears, brown bears and polar bears are all bears. 'What bear is NOT a bear?' Turn the page to see a woolly bear caterpillar. Each pair of pages includes a similar question and answer as well as dictionary-style definitions of the puzzle words and answer. Just as the pattern begins to seem repetitious, there is a variation, just a question followed by the answer on a double-page spread. And so forth. The final, title spread is predictable: children demonstrating friendship. While some sets are easy, others may surprise even adults. 'A hi-hat [cymbal] is NOT a hat!' Further puzzles are offered in a two-page conclusion; answers will be found on the publisher's website. Warning! This could become addictive. Masse’s stylized paintings include recognizable objects, a diverse collection of children and some appealing details (note the snowman outside the cutaway house and the cat on the bookcase). The prolific Ziefert has provided a game that everyone can play. "—Kirkus Reviews
